Only one Spring lamb forward today from Miss S Waller, Beckside Barn selling for £94 to Lancaster Meat Company.

A very mixed show of hoggs were forward with export types the easiest to sell with 38-40kg hoggs regularly 225-230p/kg with a top of 232p/kg. Heavy hoggs were harder to cash with very limited markets available but still a very respectable average of 204.35p/kg was achieved.

Cast Sheep once again saw a rise on the week with ewes peaking at £148 for a Texel x ewe from J & M Wilson, Cooper House selling to A Ditta, Accrington. Continental ewes were regularly away at £120-£130. Suffolks x sold to £114 for a big pen of ewes from Messrs Bland, Ninezergh and Mules to £110 with plenty £95-£105. Horned ewes sold to £84 for a pen of Swaledales from JA Bennett, Middale with the majority of plain horned ewes between £55-£65. Plenty more sheep could have been sold to meet buyers orders.
